This Week

Phew! It’s Fri-yay and I know I’m not the only one celebrating. These past few weeks have been busy to say the least and we’re finally feeling more “at home”. Yesterday evening as I was preparing this post, I was thinking to myself, shit, I don’t have any pretty photos to share of my week and then I was like welp, that’s reality so instead I did a quick tour this AM of our new space and figured I would share what I’m loving thus far. I hate to be “all about the house” (reminder to myself – stop using air quotes!) but they do tend to take over your life especially when you’re more of the DIY type person versus hiring people (lets clarify, I’m totally the type to hire people when necessary but it’s also sometimes great to challenge yourself sometimes, yah?). So tonight, Andrew and I are having a date night which feels like we haven’t had in EVER and it’s a casual one starting with dinner and then a Blue Jays game! Hope you have a good weekend in store, friends.

:: We have a porch people! And a fern! This makes me very happy except, I need to remove those little dead parts ::


:: We’re usually out of town for this festival and I’m super happy to be finally checking it out this weekend ::


:: Paint contenders for the nursery! ::


:: OK this is a life changer – a King sized bed. Andrew and I have spent the majority of our relationship in a double bed and now, we have so much space it’s insane. Please ignore the coverless duvet ::




This Week

It’s been a while since I’ve gotten to post one of these and it’s been quite the week over here! Since officially moving into our home last Friday, we’ve started the process of settling in and setting up our home and in all honesty – it’s been a bit of a blur! I totally underestimated the amount of work in a move but after a quick mani/pedi last evening, I’m slowly getting back to myself (having maintained nails are very important to feeling “myself”).  We’ve been lucky to have friends and family who have helped out along the way and it’s crazy to think that it’s now up to Andrew and I to maintain a proper household. It’s all super exciting and overwhelming at the same time. We sold a lot of our loft furniture so we’re look a little bare but we’re working on it. It will all take time, but confident it will all pay off. Normally we have some travel plans for the long weekend but we’re taking it easy, staying put, and working on the home – hope you have a good one!


:: A quick but necessary lunch at Rose and Sons to say goodbye to a special couple who are moving to NYC. Love the gold salt and pepper shakers! ::


:: Our “new” home is well over a hundred years old and has some great detail like these original doorknobs oh and popcorn walls which are… interesting? ::


:: A new addition – fell in LOVE with this rug and just knew it was the direction I wanted to go with our new living room or master bedroom – still tbd ::


:: Is having babies better than doggies? I’m still not sure but will soon find out! ::


:: Just a small portion of flowers our friends have brought over – thank you friends! ::
